    I am looking for a way, if there is one, of linking two drop-down list boxes
    in a database. The first DDLB would contain main categories and the second
    sub-categories. I'm hoping that it is possible that when an item is selected
    from the first, only those items within that category are visible in the
    second.

    Any advise would be most welcome

    In the AfterUpdate event of the first list box, requery the second list box.
